El Centro de Noticias ONU informa lo siguiente sobre la Alianza de Civilizaciones:

September 2005 – Following up on a Spanish and Turkish initiative to establish an “Alliance of Civilizations” to foster mutual respect for religious beliefs and traditions, United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today announced the composition of a High-Level Group to guide the initiative and help bring about cooperation. (…)

The Group, chaired by former UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Director-General Frederico Mayor and co-chaired by Mr. Aydin, is expected to hold its first meeting in November and to submit a report late next year.

The call for the alliance was initiated by Spanish Prime Minister José Luis Rodriguez Zapatero and co-sponsored by Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
